The Lumber Heritage Region of Pennsylvania (LHR) has launched its 2nd Annual Photo Contest following the huge success of last year’s competition. There are six categories of photographs to be judged - Events/Festivals, Wild Life, Heritage/Historical Sites, Life in the Forest, Scenic, & new this year— A Special Youth Category for photographers 14 & under. There will be three cash awards in each of the first 5 categories totaling $1250.00. The Special Youth Category will have a single prize of $50. The categories are explained on the application.
Last year the LHR received over 150 photos from all over the 15 county region from photographers as far away as Maine and Florida. “It was very difficult to choose the winners,” said LHR executive Director Mike Wennin, “as the quality of the photos was amazing.”
Applications and information are available on their website at www.lumberheritage.org. If you do not have access to the internet, phone them at 814-486-0213 and the forms will be mailed to you. Last year’s winners are also posted on the website.
Once again the contest deadline is October 12th. Keep your camera at your side this summer as you experience the wonders of the Lumber Heritage Region and the beauty of the Pennsylvania Wilds.
